Chained Melody

Written by: Deborah Simpson

Chained to haunting melody –
Caged next to delirium,
Fantasy moves me
Paralyzed –

Distanced from very reality –
Solitary, this custody,
Love fuels me
Empty –

Silence is my beating heart –
In the night so worn,
Yearn drapes me
Cold –

Despair, the bleeding fare –
Vacant eyes the portal,
Hands leave me
Desolate –

Chained to his haunting melody -
Walking with a ghost,
Covet moves me
Still –
